Woman Sues Spa Castle Over Hot Tub That Was Way Too Hot

Illustration for article titled Woman Sues Spa Castle Over Hot Tub That Was Way Too Hot

Spa Castle continues to be a stressful destination for people seeking relaxation. A Brooklyn woman is suing the Manhattan location after allegedly getting sautéed in their Jacuzzi.


In her lawsuit, Laeticia Harrison-Roberts—aka Misfit Dior, an aspiring rapper who some of us remember from the reality show Ego Trip’s (White) Rapper Show—claims she and a friend got first- and second-degree burns from the Spa Castle’s hot tub during their visit.

The New York Post reports:

Spa Castle failed to make sure the temperature and chemicals in the hot tubs at its East 57th Street location were at safe levels, Harrison-Roberts claims in the Manhattan Supreme Court case filed last week.

Mmm, chemicals. Luxurious.

Spa Castle has a lovely history of unfortunate incidents, as Gothamist points out:

In addition to the rampant underwater sex allegations against its Queens location, a dead man was discovered floating face down in one of the spa’s hot tubs in 2014. The same location also came under fire when a transgender customer was allegedly barred from using on-site locker rooms and all-nude areas in February. Later that month, a 6-year-old girl nearly drowned when her hair was caught in a Spa Castle pool vent.

None of these are experiences worthy of the name “castle.”

I’ve heard they also let gross couples eat rotisserie chickens in the hot tub.
